They're moist, flavorful, and topped with an irresistible homemade caramel frosting.


  • For the Cake:
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • For the Frosting:
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


    Preheat Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan or line it with parchment paper.

    Mix Wet Ingredients:

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, and butter until light and fluffy. Mix in the Greek yogurt until well combined.

    Add Pumpkin and Eggs:

    Add the pumpkin puree, eggs, and vanilla extract to the wet mixture and mix until smooth.

    Combine Dry Ingredients:

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

    Mix Batter:

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined.


    Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake for about 27-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    Prepare Frosting:

    While the cake is baking, make the frosting. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, heavy cream, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a gentle boil.

    Finish Frosting:

    Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and 2 cups of powdered sugar. Mix well, using an electric mixer if needed to remove any lumps. Add more powdered sugar if needed to achieve a soft, slightly thick but pourable consistency.

    Frost the Cake:

    Once the cake is out of the oven, gently spread the warm frosting over the top. Allow the cake to cool before cutting into bars and serving.
